Comments from the Pastor:
It was such a blessing to have Deanna, Makynna, and Savannah Younce sing for us on Sunday morning. Girls, you did such a good job!
We will be having an Evangelism Conference, October 9th through the 12th with Dr. Johnny Hunt, Dr. Ron Lynch and Dr. D.L. Lowery and the music will be directed by John Bowman. I hope you will be in prayer for this special time of worship and make plans to attend.
Psalm 33:1, “Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.”
Do you have a problem being thankful? Sometimes when things are not going our way, it is hard to pause and praise. If you are diagnosed with a major sickness, or if you lose your job, or if you are having problems in a relationship it can be difficult to praise the LORD. I have noticed we have a tendency to avoid God rather than embrace Him when things are not going well. Our Bible reading slows down, our prayer time shortens, and our church attendance becomes sporadic. Rather than running to the LORD, we run from Him with the attitude it is just easier to go with the flow. If you have ever been trout fishing you will have noticed that the trout face against the current. If a trout goes with the current, its gills will close and his oxygen supply will be cut off and it will die. Many Christians are like that trout going with the flow. Our spiritual oxygen has been shut off and we are slowly dying from a lack of relationship with GOD. If this describes you, turn around, praise the LORD, and look at all of His blessings in your life; and then feel His Spirit of life come flowing back into you.
Psalm 34:1, “I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
In Christ, Ricky
